Mom and Pop resort

9 posts in this topic

I am looking for a mom and pop style resort for July or August. It will be just my girlfreind and I and we are looking for something nice but affordable. She will fish for a while but, we will most likely be golfing, and checking out the local attractions and shopping areas as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Gravelle, every resort on Kab @ Ash River is family owned, some from generation to generation. Many have lodges, bars, restraunts, many have nothing but peace and tranquility with cabins only and etc. The Kabetogama, and or Ash River tourism bureau and the Resort Locator above to see what resorts offer, price ranges and in most cases take a virtual tour. god luck, guts

Gravelle, I would recommend Birch Grove as a classic M&P resort. Elaine is a fine host.

Gravelle, once again, I will point out that Kabetogama and Ash River for the most part are all Ma & Pa type operations. Look at the Resort locator above for those areas and see what amenities you want, zero in on a few resorts and check out there websites from the Resort Locator link above and take a virtual tour.

Some of the resorts have great dock locations you can fish from or watch beautiful sunups and sundowns, some have great harbors to protect your boat, and etc.

Those months can be quite warm and buggy, some cabins have A/C and or ceiling fans, some have nice screened in porches and so forth. It is important to us up here that you have an enjoyable vacation so you return many times, good luck, guts

I concur with Guts, I've stayed at a couple on the kab and prefer the one I'm at now, but the Kab tourism web site list them on on ash river and kab. Finding a good mom and pop will be no problem, your shopping will be for the price you want and what ammenities you need.

I would say Fronteir Resort on the ash river, very freindly place and fun/interesting people. If you call tell them Big Jeff sent ya. It is family owned and operated and if you want a place where you will be taken care of like family. The are also very reasonable with cost and they have great food at the resort. Good breakfast and bloodies!!!

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
